Reacquaintance with an old friend...

...of the back of the trouser variety - a pocket!

Recently I was make up a pair of trousers for someone which involved making up a type of pocket I hadn't done in a long time, but which does look great in trousers and jackets. I have to admit to an initial wobble trying to remember the best order of construction (I was sewing from a toile & pattern pieces, without any construction instructions at all) but once I'd got my head back round how it went together it was lovely to get reacquainted with a pocket which gives a lovely look to the finished garment and isn't as difficult to put together as it looks.

Now I just have to work out what I'm going to make to give me the opportunity to use it again!

  1. Looks great - you can never have too many pockets! (Just remember to take out the tissues before you wash your clothes.......)
